County Self-Assessment

Over the Summer and Fall of 2013, Alpine County Health & Human Services agency implemented the CSA process in close collaboration with the Child Abuse Prevention Council, the Children's Trust Fund Commission, representatives of the Washoe Tribe, parent/consumers and virtually all respondents and service providers, including both private and public agencies and department representatives who have a role in the prevention, early intervention, and prosecution of child abuse and neglect in Alpine County. The purpose of the C-CFSR, overseen by California Department of Social Services (CDSS), is to conduct a system-wide assessment to inform priority needs and outcome improvement efforts over the next five-year cycle to support continuous quality improvement in local child welfare efforts.
